10 of Wands as a Daily Tarot Oracle Card

Oracle Message: Get your multitasking hat on, today will be quite a ride.


I love that the Shadowscapes Tarot has a more elegant depiction of the 10 of Wands. The lady appears to be carrying her very large load lightly. There is no drudgery here, only capability and that I feel is the key to this card today – capability.

Today will be a hard day, full on & demanding. It will seem as if the world will stop if you don’t sort everything out for everyone around you. The phone may ring constantly, a number of bills land on the doormat, children and your elderly parents need running here there and everywhere. And yet you do it all.

This is the card of the multitasker, the traditional housewife or homemaker who does everything for everyone and still manages to sit down in the evening. My mother-in-law is one such woman. And this is you today. Its’ gonna be busy, but you’ve got this.
